    1. The song is from the late ’60’s and I don’t think the technology for synthesizing horns (at least not that well) was around then, so it’s most likely a live horn section.


  1. I haven’t heard this one either and the title made me think of a different song, the one by Lee Michaels, so I was totally unprepared for the way this one sounded.


  2. John,

    First time hearing this song. I guess The Turtles most popular song is ‘Happy Together’ but I find it interesting how a group came out with such a fun-loving song also did ‘Eve of Destruction’. Have a rockin’ good day and thanks for stopping in today!


    1. That happened a lot, where a song would be real popular in some cities and practically unheard of in others. I see that on Fridays, when a song that reached #1 on a specific station came in much lower nationally, or I’ll find a song that I never heard (or at least can’t remember) placing high nationally. Weird how they determine what does and doesn’t get played.
